I'd agree with you that the felon should not be able to own a gun, but I do think they should be able to vote. My logic is simple: a gun is dangerous, put it in a felon's hands, and it's more dangerous. What harm can the right to vote do?vauge said:Many states say "no", and I personally agree.
A felon gives up his rights when he/she committed the crime. Same goes for voting.
Without limiting it to just self defense - what about hunting as a sport or for food?Gandhi>Bush said:Maybe a handgun if your application is accepted to some sort of regulating agency. But assault rifles and shot guns... no one needs those to protect themselves.
LOL.Gandhi>Bush said:That's actually an interesting point.
But until disney makes a movie about salmon, which they won't, because Walt Disney is dead (in case you haven't heard), I don't care for fish.
I don't eat fish. They taste bad. I don't go fishing. It's boring.
I don't have near as much problem with hunting as I do with guns. So if you can devise some way to kill a deer with a rod & reel. Be my guest. I'd like to see that on tape if you don't mind.
Don't forget, Walt Disney was a racist.vauge said:? Should felons be allowed to own a bow? early and havn't had
I haven't either, but I have heard of State DNRs asking for helping in controlling the population:Gandhi>Bush said:I've never heard of anyone going hunting because of their duty over mother nature to control the growing population of deer.
Wisconsin, where the above link is from, also has a program that's sponsored by the state DNR. Hunt for the Hungry which since the fall hunting season of 2000, hunters have donated over 24,000 deer which have provided over one million pounds of ground venison to needy families.Keith Warnke, DNR big game ecologist. “We have taken a very positive step in reducing populations toward the management goal but we need hunters’ continued support and participation paired with an aggressive harvest of antlerless deer this fall to maintain the progress.”
